I almost made it through the damned day without blogging about the primary, but then MSNBC had to highlight this interview with Hillary on FOX:
Clinton’s campaign has argued for seating the Michigan and Florida delegations, which were stripped after those states held early primaries in violation of party rules. Recent efforts to hold re-votes in those states have fallen through.
Clinton won both of those states’ primaries in January, though none of the candidates campaigned. Obama was not even on the ballot in Michigan.
Clinton said, barring a resolution on Florida and Michigan, the fight goes to convention.
“You know, you can always go to the convention. That’s what credential fights are for,” she said. “Let’s have the Democratic party go on record against seating the Michigan and Florida delegations three months before the general election? I don’t think that will happen. I think they will be seated. So that’s where we’re headed if we don’t get this worked out.”
Not only is she still lying about Florida and Michigan and the fact that she, herself, chose to agree those delegates did not count initially, but she is now threatening a credential fight at the convention.
She doesn’t give a shit about the party, she wants the nomination and she will blow up the Democratic party if she has to get it. I can’t figure out what irritates me more- that she is blaming Obama for Michigan and Florida, or that she is lying about her former position.
Fortunately, North Carolina may end this nonsense:
Hillary Clinton desperately needs to claim more white votes if she is to win a desperately needed primary by taking the Democratic presidential contest in North Carolina May 6.
But with five weeks to go, undecided whites likely to vote in that primary are, if anything, slowly moving to Obama’s column, or may be ready to.
Here are the results of our North Carolina poll from Wednesday night:
“If you are voting in the Democratic primary and the election were held today, who would you vote for?”
Barack Obama (49%)
Hillary Clinton (34%)
In other primary news, the fat cats in bed with Hillary and attempting to blackmail Pelosi are, quite literally, in bed with Hillary:
At least 6 of the 20 big Dem donors who are now threatening to exort Nancy Pelosi on behalf of Hillary slept in the Lincoln Bedroom while Bill and Hillary were in the White House.
The end of the Clinton era is near, but no doubt they are going to make their exit as ugly as possible.
